A European Space Agency (ESA) business incubation start-up company is helping major car manufacturers to develop electric vehicle concepts and improve safety systems by turning ideas quickly into virtual prototypes. read more
It speaks volumes about the neurotic British obsession with youth that an otherwise interesting lifestylee article on the UK’s first official European Space Agency astronaut carries the headline “Major Tim Peake says he is not too old to go into space”. What on Earth is that all about? I mean, the last thing you want [...]

A Russian Proton-M launch vehicle delivered early on Wednesday a European telecommunications satellite into a designated orbit, Russia’s space agency Roscosmos said.
A Proton-M rocket carrying a European telecommunications satellite blasted off from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan on Tuesday, a spokesman for Russia’s space agency Roscosmos said.
Kicking off with the Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer (GOCE), which was launched in March 2009, the European Space Agency’s Earth Explorer missions are intended to provide a greater understanding of the Earth and the interactions between various natural Earth processes.

The European Space Agency's (ESA) Herschel space observatory has made detailed observations of surprisingly hot molecular gas that may be orbiting or falling towards the supermassive black hole lurking at the center of our Milky Way galaxy. read more
The European Space Agency’s Herschel Space Observatory has completed its work.
After nearly four years mapping the "hidden universe," the largest infrared telescope ever launched into space has reached the end of its life, European Space Agency officials say. The $1.4 billion Herschel Space Observatory has exhausted...Show More Summary
The Herschel observatory, a European space telescope for which NASA helped build instruments and process data, has stopped making observations after running out of liquid coolant as expected. The European Space Agency mission, launched almost four years ago, revealed the universe's "coolest" secrets by observing the frigid side of planet, star and galaxy formation.
All good things come to an end and the European Space Agency’s Herschel Space Observatory mission is no exception. After more than three years in orbit, the most powerful infrared telescope ever flown in space has ceased scientific operations...Show More Summary
The European Space Agency's Herschel (ESA) space observatory has exhausted its supply of liquid helium coolant, ending more than three years of pioneering observations of the cool Universe. read more
This was all planned, but somehow it is still sad: European Space Agency’s Herschel space telescope is officially dead, its observing has been brought to a permanent end. HSO has exhausted all of its cryogen, there is no more superfluid liquid helium in the cryostat. This ends the more than three years of pioneering observations of the cool Universe, ESA reports.

Mercedes Benz's popular van family has been upgraded for the European market with cleaner engines capable of 37 mpg (Euro), electronic crosswind assist as standard, more space and comfort, and 37,000-mile maintenance intervals. Read more...
Scientists estimate there are roughly 30,000 items circling the Earth that are larger in size than 10 centimeters. Image by the European Space Agency. The sheer amount of debris in low-Earth orbit is tipping space dangerously close to a...
The amount of debris orbiting the Earth is alarming. It's a threat to both space science, and business -- space business. The European Space Agency just wrapped up its 6th European Conference on Space Debris to decide what to do about it. One of the ideas? Let's shoot harpoons and nets at the junk. How soon before Space Junkers is a show on the Discovery Channel?
I like very much the following behind-the-scenes photos the European Space Agency published on its blog and on its Facebook page. Read more...

The oil industry seems to be constantly undervalued. Many of the large companies in this space produce massive amounts of revenue and trade at low multiples. However, there are still ways to identify companies that I feel can outperform American giants such as Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) and Chevron Corporation (NYSE:CVX). Three European oil companies, [...]
The European Space Agency's (ESA) Herschel space observatory has solved a long-standing mystery as to the origin of water in the upper atmosphere of Jupiter, finding conclusive evidence that it was delivered by the dramatic impact of comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 in July 1994. read more
